Travel

Traveling to a new destination on your own can be scary but those nervous jitters can easily be replaced with joy and excitement. Solo travel gives you a chance to explore new places on your own time and in your own style. Women opt for solo travel for different reasons. For some, it might be a last resort when plans fall through. In other cases, it's an opportunity meant to be seized and a chance to focus your time on yourself. Being alone in a city away from home is an experience women should jump towards regardless of age. Solitude brings a level of appreciation that sometimes gets hindered when with company. You see the city through brand new eyes and can move at a pace that gives you time to learn and understand yourself.

Whatever the reason may be for your quest of solo travel, picking the right destination is essential. Solo travel can be as simple as a train ride to a neighboring city or as extravagant s a flight across the world There's so much to see, so choosing where to go can be daunting. To make the process easier, I've narrowed down 10 locations that women should see based on the city's safety and variety of things to do. Check them out by clicking through the gallery below!

It's the home of the TV and Film industry where you can spend time visiting one of the many studio lots or go for a walk along the Hollywood Walk of Fame. There are plenty of beaches, restaurants, and yoga classes that will allow you live like a local for a few days. The endless juice bars and taco carts might even tempt you into staying for a while.

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
